Mosques in U.S.A.

Reader comment on item: [Mosque Mischief and] Counting Mosques

Submitted by Jamal K. (United States), Feb 5, 2003 at 13:20

I have been going to mosques in U.S.A. since 1966 for friday prayers (until I stopped going last year). I always found the preachers to be anti west/USA and preaching hatred towards non-muslims and USA. I have heard them discouraging people from even participating in the voting process because they say it is an infidel govrnment and interacting with them is a sin. Needless to say that voting turnout among religious muslims ( generally bearded/hijabbed) in this country is extremely low whereas the same people turn up in very large numbers in muslim countries ( few where democracy is practised). With this mindset of the mosque leaders it is not surprising that mosques become hotbed for the muslim terrorists for fundraising and recruitment. They make rebels out of the young muslims who go there. You can see their influence by the increasing number of youth growing beards and wearing hijabs, many even volunteering to fight jihads in far off lands like the American Taliban Walker . It is high time that government look into these nests of anti- americanism right under our noses called mosques which are often funded by arab money and always indirectly funded by U.S. government through tax free status.
